(The Spread) – Can the Montreal Canadiens slow a New York Rangers team that is starting to pick up some momentum as the season draws to its finish?

Oddsmakers from online sports book Sportsbook.com have made the Rangers -158 money line favorites over the Canadiens, who are +146 on the money line. The over/under total for this contest is currently sitting at 5 goals.

The Habs enter Friday night’s game with a 39-25-4-3 record overall and a 17-16-1-0 road mark. According to latest NHL trends, the under is 40-22 in all Montreal games this season, and 25-7 when the Habs play on the road.

The Rangers come into tonight’s game with a 37-30-2-2 record and a 16-16-1-2 home record. The under is 40-27 in all New York games this season, although the over is 17-16 when the Rangers play at Madison Square Garden.

NHL Free Pick: The Canadines have beaten the Rangers on five consecutive occasions, including all three of their matchups with New York this season. But while Montreal looks like a nice value at +146, the under appears to be the best bet here. The under is 3-0-1 in the last four meetings between these two teams and 12-4-1 in the last 17 games between the Habs and Rangers in New York. The under is also 5-1-1 in the Rangers last seven games on Friday 3-1-1 in the Canadiens’ last five games overall. Both teams have a lot of injuries and seeing as how we’re drawing closer to the end of the season, both squads might be tired as well. I like the under.
